How Target’s Mobile Ecosystem works and how it could Improve

How Target’s Mobile Ecosystem works and how it could Improve

Welcome to Minnesota, Earth - Target Brand department store originating right here in my midwest place of birth, aiming for and achieving a spread across North America like a wildfire - and like any forward thinking place of business, they want to get in on the mobile business to keep their show on the road. Therefor they've created Target Mobile Store, or simply "mobile" by Target Brand and powered by Simplexity - this group, if you did not know, only handles online sales of cell phones and wireless service, thus you wont see "SIMPLEXITY" plastered all over the electronics department at your local physical Target location.

What we've got now is only the second 7-inch tablet on the market and the first one to carry any version of Honeycomb. Furthermore, this A100 7-inch Acer tablet is the world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, 3.2 being the first tablet-oriented Google mobile OS made for tablets of under 10 inches in size. This tablet is not meant to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and neither this nor the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet are likely to be winning the tablet fashion show, but what we DO have here is a nice little "tween" sized Android device toting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core processor - will it carve its own piece out of the tablet market pie due to it's relatively unique nature?
